In the game of Bullet Train, you have just one enormous location as your playground, but it is filled with intense gameplay and enemies. In your arsenal, you will find shotguns, assault rifles, pistols, and grenades.

Our protagonist moves by teleportation and can even stop time. Slow motion basically turns you into a beast: you can throw grenades and weapons, grab new guns, teleport to cover long distances, shoot, and even reverse enemy projectiles!

The game is built on Unreal Engine 4 and fully optimized for VR running smoothly with 90 fps even on computers with minimal hardware required for VR-gaming. Graphics look amazing; there are even some destructible objects.
